Give A Book Get A Smile

Give A Book Get A Smile

Low literacy is a staggering problem. According to the ProLiteracy website, children of parents with low literacy skills are more likely to get poor grades, have behavioral problems and drop out. 43% of adults with the lowest literacy levels live in poverty. In addition, an excess of 230 billion a year in health care cost is linked to low adult literacy. Danielle Hampson, Executive Producer of The Authors Show intends to bring authors together to help make a difference.

Through its newly launched “Give A Book Get A Smile” initiative, The Authors Show is calling on its large network of authors and publishing industry professionals to donate books to the project for distribution to children, teenagers and adults who are challenged with reading skills, or access to books.

"Give A Book Get A Smile" is a long-term project with multiple phases. Ms. Hampson is calling on authors to donate at least five books (fiction/non-fiction) either in the children category – age 4-12, or young adults for teens, or adult books. She especially welcomes self-help books, both in personal and business development. From a recipient standpoint, eighty percent of donated books within the USA will go to schools with a large student population of underprivileged children, troubled youth organizations, women shelters, and to the homeless community throughout the United States. The balance of twenty percent will be earmarked for foreign distribution.

“I do volunteer work with an advanced leadership program for women in China that has a literacy project, and in my last trip to China I brought children books for them”, Hampson stated. “When I gave the books, I received such big smiles back that I immediately thought to start a project to help them, and the name 'Give A Book Get A Smile' sounded like a perfect fit. Upon my return to the U.S., with many literacy issues in our own back yard, I felt the need to also help people right here at home. In that I work in online media in the publishing industry, I knew I could leverage my 12+ years of contacts in this industry to bring this project to life.”

As more books are donated to the program, other phases will be implemented to expand the reach of the donations to local communities in all fifty states, Canada, and to more countries. All recipients will be vetted to insure the books are needed and are indeed provided to those who do need them.

Danielle Hampson is available for media interviews and can be reached using the information below or by email at danielle@theauthorsshow.com. More information about “Give A Book Get A Smile” is available at the website.

The Authors Show is a professional book marketing audio & video interview podcast in its 12th year. The interviews are professionally produced and broadcast worldwide through the show’s substantial marketing and publicity outreach.
